It isn’t easy being green!

Those who know me won’t be surprised by this next statement –  I love green. So when I saw that there were some  challenges that I could play with my favourite colour I quickly got myself inky!

I made 1 card that I think fit the bill for 4 different challenges:

I used a stamp set by Altenew called Peony Bouquet with a sentiment from their Birthday Greetings set – thanks to my MISTI for making this multi-layer stamping super easy. The inks are from Catherine Pooler Designs in Melon Ice, Garden Party and Lime Rickey. The black stripe DSP is from a MFT 6×6 paper pad. I added some sequins for a little bit of extra bling and I was done.

The background behind my card is my new Tim Holtz glass media mat which I love; cleaning up has never been easier!

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Green is such a fresh, crisp colour, can totally understand why you love it so much!! Your green flowers are just stunning against all that white background and that strip of patterned paper around the edges just frames it perfectly. Its a stunning card, I’m so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!

  2. It may not be easy to be green, Tristan, but when you’re so marvellously stamped and coloured, I think it’s acceptable. Wow! I hadn’t thought of green flowers but do they ever work! I love the diagonal stripes in the patterned paper you’ve used as a matte. It forms a subtle but effective pattern around your stamped image. Love the embellishments. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. Thanks Tristan for sharing your beautiful card at this week’s Watercooler Wednesday “Any Occasion” challenge. Don’t you just love multi layer stamping? You must because you did a terrific job with this beautiful green flower. Your sentiment is also really great. I love the lettering.
